Another month, another Glossybox. This pink box of wonders actually arrived on my doorstep last week yet I have only had time to sit own and evaluate it. Before I even opened the box to inspect the goods, I had already heard plenty of negative thoughts on this months box. So, when I opened the box I wasn't expecting an array of products that I would actually use, love or rave about. Having said that, I wouldn't say I am impressed but I also wouldn't go as far as saying I am disappointed. I think it's OK, not the best box I have had but this is the thing with beauty boxes, it's a gamble. If your not in for the gamble, then don't subscribe, you win some, you lose some and thats what its all about. Also, the Glossybox is £12.95 a month which in my mind, is not a great deal if you sit down, evaluate the products, add up the costs and TADA, one of your full sized products is probably worth more than £12.95 alone. Sure, you may not like your full sized product but like I mentioned, it's all a gamble so it does pain me to see people moan about it. After all HEY, you signed up!

From this months box, I would definitely use all of the products, except the shower gel which I will be saving for my travels next month!

Did you receive the Glossybox this month? What's your thoughts on beauty boxes in general?

(Disclaimer: This product was sent to me free for product review)


  1. It is a gamble. I have the German Glossybox and I really really like it. I enjoy getting things in the post. I'm more of a drugstore kind of gal, so its nice when I receive some high end products that I would have never known about without the glossybox.


  2. I've been seeing the Impress Nails at my local CVS every time I go, and I'm always curious about them. I'd love to see what you think of them if you do try them! :)

  3. lovee the glossy box ♥


  4. i wasnt too impressed with the australian feb glossybox too

    The Ugly Moments

  5. wasn't too impressed with this month's glossy box, looking for another box to subscribe to. i think i only subscribe it for the pretty box ¬_¬ sometimes i use the box to put my baked goods in as a present for friends. =P


  6. I totally agree with you it is a gamble, kind of like those surprise goody bags you would get as a kid...i don't know if you ever got them but sometimes they had all your favorite candy and a cool toy and other times you were stuck with some sour gumballs and some stupid bouncy ball...hahaha but i think that's the whole point of the box...to be surprised and sometimes let down

  7. this is really cool ! :D


  8. Um I find it really hard to actually have the motivation to join these weekly subscription boxes; Glossybox, Glambag etc!

    I mean for the price it seems so 'worthwhile' but when it comes to finding out the contents I can't help but feel as though I'd either neglect to use most of the products and end up with a million sample sized goodies laying around the house - unused :)

    But I LOVE reading about them, esp yours, your incredible informative and very punctual in terms of delivering them on your blog :)
